Happy Birthday & Happy New Year
I'm 44 today. I think I've been 44 for three years because I lost track of how old I was, but this year I'm really 44, I did the math. I remember last year thinking I was 44 and my aunty reminded me that I was only 43. Now that I've had a week off work, I can truly say I don't feel 44 any more. I regained some youthful energy!
It was a low-key day, much to my daughters' surprise. But I did put some candles on a loaf of pumpkin bread that a friend made for me and they girls did sing. Friends called and sang Happy Birthday to me. It was just perfect, in my opinion.
I'm looking forward to 2013. It's going to be another big year, but I feel centered and ready. This last week was the maternity leave my family needed and we never got. We are definitely on the right track for now.
Right now, my girls are sleeping in the living room under the Christmas tree. I remember doing that as a child, starring at the magical lights until my eyes closed in peaceful sleep.
Happy New Year!
